 Some of the highlights in this release include:
 
+o The class org.apache.commons.lang3.concurrent.Memoizer is an implementation
+    of the Memoizer pattern as shown in
+    Goetz, Brian et al. (2006) - Java Concurrency in Practice, p. 108.
+o The package org.apache.commons.lang3.concurrent.annotation has been added.
+    It provides annotations which help developers document the concurrency
+    properties of their code.
+o The class org.apache.commons.lang3.ArchUtils has been added. ArchUtils is
+    a utility class for the "os.arch" system property.
+
+DEPRECATIONS
+============
+
+The Apache Commons Community has recently set up the Commons Text component
+as a home for algorithms working on strings. For this reason most of the string
+focused functionality in Commons Lang has been deprecated and moved to
+Commons Text. This includes:
+
+o Most of the classes in the org.apache.commons.lang3.text package
+o org.apache.commons.lang3.StringEscapeUtils
+o org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils.getJaroWinklerDistance and
+    org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils.getLevenshteinDistance
+
+For more information see the Commons Text website:
+
+    http://commons.apache.org/text
+
+BUILDING ON JAVA 9
+==================
+
+The build problems present in the 3.5 release have been resolved. Building
+Commons Lang 3.6 should work out of the box with the latest Java 9 EA build.
